    Well. to make a long story short, I was an active member at another, very large audio related board. The Admin made a whole lot of changes that the active users were NOT digging. I told him that, he didn't want to hear it, and one thing led to another, which led to me getting banned.

    Before I got banned, I told him if he banned me I'd start my own board, and give the users just a little more than he was giving them.

    I emailed two users from the previous board I was on, they told a couple of people, who told a couple of people, etc.

    Since I put my board up, it's had over a thousand more posts than the one I got banned from, which has been around for 8 years.

    I learned a valuable lesson from it. LISTEN TO THE MEMBERS!!!!

    I had zero programming or web design experience. Never even registered a domain name before. The vBulletin software makes me look real smart to people that don't realize how great a product it is.

    I am still near the tip of the iceberg as far as implementing the different features available, but little by little it's improving.

    Thanks for the kind works. I've put a lot of work into it. I think my family misses me.

    Just made live today and looking to build a solid member base. This is my first time doing this so any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    With ldap directory for example, or a plugin that integrates 1 userbase, etc.

    Cool thread

    Might be worth while if one of the staff members deleted the posts on forums no longer in business

    Sorry we're not running yet and the only place I have which could get mentioned doesn't use vB.

Increasing traffic and building a community faster. it also gives a great impression of a network with multiple sites that is doing pretty good as it looks active. Which usually gets you more return traffic and more new members too.
    So how do we do this? Point me in the right direction please.
